We have compiled a list of questions that we hope may give you some answers to the most common questions we hear from our customers.

  • Do you have parking available for customer’s cars?

    Yes and it’s free.
  • How old do you have to be to hire the vehicles?

    21 years old, (Please note that anyone aged between 21-24 are subject to a £1000 damage excess.) but we can contact our insurers for quotes if you are not 25 or over.
  • Are you a franchise?

    No, we own and run the business ourselves.
  • Does the hire have to be for 7, 14 or 21 days?

    No, you can hire the vehicles from 1 to 30 days or as many as you wish. There is no minimum period of hire required.
  • Can we take the vehicles abroad?

    Yes, there are no problems with taking the vehicles abroad, but there is an additional charge for this (typically £150).
  • Can we take vehicles to festivals?

    Yes, there are no problems with taking a vehicle to a festival but there is a £75 surcharge added to the price of the rental.
  • What identification do we require to hire a vehicle?

    Drivers license, a passport and a utility bill.
  • Will we be shown how to fully use the motorhome?

    Yes, you will get a full handover where we run through all the systems and procedures. This normally takes 60 minutes.
  • What is the £500 security mandate for?

    This is to cover our excess if a vehicle is returned to us in an unsatisfactory condition. The monies will only be deducted if a vehicle requires an insurance claim (regardless of blame).
  • How many miles to the gallon does the motorhome achieve?

    Approximately 25-30 mpg depending on how the vehicles are driven.
  • How much water do the vehicles hold and how long will it last?

    The on board vehicle water tanks hold approximately 75 – 100 litres. This would normally last for up to 3 days, but please bear in mind that showers use a considerable amount of water, so we would recommend you use onsite caravan park facilities if available.
  • If travelling without a car can we store our suitcases with you?

    Yes, absolutely no problems at all.
  • Is there a maximum mileage allowance?

    Yes 1000 miles. 10p per mile is charged for miles over 1000 miles per hire. Please note this excludes E.U. travel.
  • When can I pick up and return motorhome?

    Pick up and return times are negotiable during the hire to suit the hirer.
